Doctors Visit Today

Good morning sweets!

I woke up bright and early today to walk with my friend Aubrey downtown Ventura. So glad she drove over to meet me! We landed ourselves at Starbucks to spit a wrap and sip on soy lattes.

I’m somewhat dreading what I have to do today… but at the same time, trying to stay positive.

Birth Control.

I have a visit to the doc this morning to make my decisions about it. I don’t have much longer to deicide. Today is the day. If I am being honest, I’m flippin’ nervous. I had a terrible experience before. But, if I’m being honest again, I’m going into this with a positive mindset. I’m going into this thinking “okay, this could turn out great, and work really well.” If you sense that I’m being overly optimistic, don’t tell me. Ha!

I know there are other options, and that makes me feel good. I figure I may as well try this route, see how it goes and if I end up not liking it I can always stop.

Here are my eats yesterday:


My day started with a banana and Step class. The class was awesome. I met my Dad there, and we got our butt’s kicked.

egg and spinach wrap

When I got home I made a really yummy breakfast wrap: one Ezekiel tortilla with two eggs, spinach, mushrooms, and t. of homemade pesto all wrapped up and melty. Mmm!


The day was gloomy yesterday… I don’t mind misty days like these. They’re a great time to slow down and get cozy.


For a mid-morning snack I enjoyed a nectarine.


I guess you could call this Green Smoothie lunch? I didn’t really have a full meal. More like snacked through the afternoon 🙂

Next couple snacks were Cocoa SuperSeedz (review coming soon — you guys are going to love these!) and carrots with hummus.

Zoom in and you’ll see this sweet gift that my Client brought for Marco and I! A recipe book! I’m so excited to print out mine and my Dads recipe for this book. I’d share all of the recipes here, but we’ve got something brewing on our own 😉

shelled peanuts

While cooking dinner last night I shared this little bowl of peanuts with Marco. He grilled last night! He made us Turkey burger patties and I made the healthy loaded baked taters.

On mine: sliced tomato, broccoli, and a mixture of sautéed onions, bell peppers, and mushrooms all chopped up

On his: a mixture of sautéed onions, bell peppers, and mushrooms plus cheese & sour cream.

On the side we had turkey burger patties. Mine, no cheese. His, Havarti (best cheese!) This was a super filling dinner. We each packed half of our baked taters into his lunch pail with an extra turkey burger and the leftover pesto pasta from the night before. Quick packed lunch!

Ladies: what are your guys favorite meals? Marco is the opposite of picky. He’ll eat anything that I cook (thankfully) but I do want to make him something really special and hearty — tell me your mans fav. food to have you cook! 

Alright… I’m off to that dreaded *super optimistic* appointment of mine. Eeeerk!

  • I don’t think you’re being overly optimistic at all! Everything that can work out, will…and birth control is definitely something that CAN go really well!

    My hubby’s all-time favorite food is crab legs. I looooove making them for him, and serving them with new and interesting flavors that make him forget all about the need for dunking in butter. 😉

  • Amy

    Aw don’t worry! My first BC was a disaster but now i have been on ortho tri-cyclen for years with no issue 🙂

  • Interested in hearing more about your doctor appointment and what you decide. Thanks for being so open on your blog!

    • Of course! And I will follow up and let everyone know how it’s going.

  • Good luck at the appointment! I was on the pill for about 7 years and just recently went off it. I want to see what my body is like without it, and how my moods will be, etc. I considered doing a hormone-free IUD but I’m not sure about it just yet…are you going to let us know what you choose? It’s a topic I’m very interested in, although I know some people can be uncomfortable talking about it. I was on the pill for so long and then one day I just realized, ‘hey, I’m into eating healthy and living healthy, but I’m putting extra hormones in my body, this doesn’t feel right anymore.’

    • Hey Ashley! Yes, I’ll follow up with you all and let you know how I’m feeling after a while on it. So far, so good, and I’m usually affected super quickly by anything hormonal.

  • Good luck at the appointment, and make the decision that is right for you! I chose to stop it after lots of digestive distress, and I read the book Taking Charge of your Fertility, which was life-changing for me.

  • Katie

    Try nuva ring! I was cray cray on the pill, not good about taking it consistently, etc. Nuva Ring was a life saver if you are comfortable with your body….
